After the Falcons score, Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith smoothly executed a series passes to guide his team back down the field as time ticked away, getting close enough to the end zone to set up a potentially game winning field goal with just seconds left on the clock.

 

Enter kicker Nick Folk, who nailed a 43-yard field goal on the final play, giving the Jets a 30-28 victory.



The Saints are sitting pretty in the NFC South. After Week 5:

New Orleans 5----0

Carolina 1----3

Atlanta 1----4

Tampa Bay 0----4
